mitt romney moving from being behind by 8 points to being ahead by 4 points. the rasmussen poll out this morning also conducted post-debate that show them tied. rasmussen has a reputation for being a poll that makes republicans look good. gallup is considered a nonpartisan poll, not one with a tilt one way or the other. they show president obama up five points, though much closer for the post-debate portion of the sample. president obama was on the west coast today courting latinos, and he gave some remarks about the state of the economy and how it affects latinos. >> no matter who you are and what you look like or where you come from, this is the place where you can make it if you try. today we have more work to do to fulfill that promise. the recession we're fighting our way back from is still taking a toll, but thanks to the strength and character of american people, we are making progress. >> now, of course, latinos are one of the reasons president obama has been doing well in some of the western states like colorado, nevada, new mexico, as well as florida. we now have to see gi

romney. obama falls into the trap and his polls crash again. he loses a debate. he loses the week after the debate, and he loses big bird. i've never seen anything like this, newt. it is amateur hour. >> well, i think what you're finally seeing is that once the shell cracks and once the facade breaks, i think obama right now is totally disoriented. they are shocked watching six months of careful work just disappear in 90 minutes. it was the worst performance which an incumbent president i think in my lifetime. even jimmy carter did better than that 90-minute performance by obama, and i think they are probably literally shellshocked right now which sets the stage for tonight. i think it's going to be very interesting to watch tonight. i suspect, i don't know, but i suspect biden's going to come in there trying to re-establish some sense of momentum, and i think that ryan's got to go in, stick to the facts and be calm and steady and a potential president. >> just on the joe biden thing for a second. nobody, including obama, has really created an argument, a rationale, a reason for re-elec

this comes as the romney rally continues in the latest polls. rasmussen has romney up by one. investors business daily has romney leading obama by five, 49-44. there's the daily tracking poll. with tomorrow night's debate, won't the inevitable paul ryan victory just send team obama over the edge into the looney bin? well, that's kind of the way i see it. but there may be some disagreement. we have karen finney, columnest for "the hill." and kate obenshane. ms. finney, this is the way i look t it. romney is smarter than biden. romney is better informed than biden. romney is younger than biden. and romney is cuter than biden. so i think romney's just going to do great in this debate, your thought? >> i assume you mean ryan. >> i did mean ryan, i'm sorry. i take it all back. >> if ryan wants to show those abs, i'm sure the audience would love it. look, there are a couple of things. joe biden will be able to hold ryan's feet to the fire in a way that i don't think anyone else has. and we've heard some of that conversation earlier this evening on your program talking specifically about the b

next week with obama and romney. that is going to determine what the next pivot in this race is. >> john, just to bring up a couple of points. we did have an informal poll on cnbc, about 3,000 people wrote in, based on what they have been writing, it went 60% in favor of ryan, 31% in favor of biden. 58-33, as those polls continue and we're watching intrade throughout where people are putting money down on this. barack obama at this point has 62.9%, mitt romney has 37.2%. i think it came down in the last half hour or so, earlier checked on barack obama he was up as high as 42%. 32-to 37.9. larry, you have incredible analysis to what you've seen. you've watched a lot of debates. what did you think? >> interesting debate. one thing that interested me. i came for an economics debate and tax and budget debate. i didn't get it. martha did a good job but really tilted this towards foreign policy. i happen to think that was the wrong tilt but she did what she did. at the beginning when they got into foreign policy, ryan demonstrated a greater grand jury, went toe-to-toe, face to face, p

research had obama up four in ohio. but another poll, arg had romney up one. there's a new poll out today, came out today, survey usa has obama up one, 45% to 44% in ohio. >> i guess it depends on how many democrats you poll and how many republicans. >> that's true too. >> and that's why the debate is so important. because that deals with the energy and enthusiasm of your political base and that gets the turnout. if democrats are feeling muted and down beat after the debate, they might not be as fired out to go out and get their friends and rent a van and go to the polling place. the same thing with the republicans on the flip side. the enthusiasm and turnout on the base is going to matter in ohio. >> eamon, thank you. >> you bet. >> okay. are you a nationals fan? >> i'm -- i'm not. i'm not a baseball guy. so, but they're having a good year down here and redskins are doing all right too. >> yeah, that's true. a programming note, cnbc's coverage of the vice presidential debate starts tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. eastern time. are you part of this? >> i am. carl and i are doing that. >> and lefrak

of these polls, barack obama is leading mitt romney like in sales of halloween masks. these marketing stunts cost almost nothing and they're now almost mandatory. >> in the social media world you kind of look a little odd if you're not getting in to the conversation. if the debate's going on and you're not talking about it or not talking about what's happening coming up this november, then maybe you look a little like you're not with it. >> reporter: jetblue's first-ever election tie-in offers 1,000 free flights out of country for people threatening to leave if their guy loses. >> i would go to mexico. >> barbados, jamaica. >> i would leave the country. >> if things don't go your way, don't worry -- here's your chance to get out of the country with a free flight. >> from our perspective, we're outspent four or five to one by some of our bigger competitors. it is important to do marketing programs and we want to do programs that actually -- every dollar we spend is worth $4 or $5. this program based on all the stats we've seen so far absolutely hits that mark. >> reporter: president obama is winni

in the rasmussen poll at 48 which featured in the weekend post-debate poll. romney was ahead by two points. there was some impact from the unemployment numbers on friday, you look at the data since the debate it's a 47-47 tie. there's big events coming up. the first debate was the biggest thing since the conventions. now this thursday on the 11th you've got paul ryan and vice president joe biden. this is going to be very important for obama's effort to stave off romney. then on the 16th you got the second obama-romney debate. on the 22nd final obama-romney debate. then the last friday before the election one more jobs number. my own inclination the job numbers aren't quite as "game change"ing for debates as for the reason voters know how they feel about the economy. they don't need a government report. it does get a lot of attention and we got a race that's plainly at this point even though obama still has a slight advantage in the battleground states this race can go either way. >> interesting. then we got the governor, of course, speaking at vmi about foreign policy, an area for which a

the first debate last week in denver, mitt romney's closed. we've got some new nbc/"wall street journal"/maris polls out this morning that show, first of all, you've got a challenger that's tied with the president, up one in virginia, down one in florida. that's essentially an even race. between those two you've got 42 electoral votes are you talking about. mitt romney remains down in the state of ohio. that is one his campaign believes he must win to get to 270 electoral votes. he's down six, 51%-45% in that state. however, mitt romney got on a wave in denver last week and paul ryan has a chance tonight, guys, to continue that momentum, an interesting match-up, we've seen it before of an older, experienced vice president, a younger less tested running mate. we saw it with dick cheney and with john edwards in 2004. dick cheney got the better of that. we saw it with lloyd benson and dan quayle in 1988. it appeared that lloyd benson got the better of that, but of course george bush and dan quayle won the election. i talked to dan quayle yesterday -- or a few days ago, rather, he said he t

of the specific issues julian mentioned, if you don't think the polls have moved that much, then you aren't looking that closely. ohio is now within very much the margin of error. florida is going toward romney. and you're looking at states like michigan, pennsylvania, new hampshire, very much in play. this race is extremely tight. and that debate last night did not help democrats at all because guess what, joe biden did not explain why the ticket deserves to have four more years. he did attack the romney/ryan ticket, but wasn't really able to take any credit for any achievements because there haven't been any. on the libyan situation, he was really embarrassing because he contradicted not just the department of state, but he really threw the intelligence community under the bus using them as a defense for what has been a coverup of a terrorist attack on 9/11. >> julian, do you want to get in here? >> yeah, let me respond. first of all, i think that the polls have moved a little bit in places like florida, not substantially enough in ohio, pennsylvania, michigan. secondly, i think -- >> i
